Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you are an American with a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 320-523-2301 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for any American with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

A Little More History

When August Dirks came to Olivia by oxcart in 1911, he rented a 30x32 foot building on main street. He had 4 years of experience in the retail furniture business, a few pieces of inventory and a dream to build a life on the prairie for his family. Two years went by; the business prospered; his rental term ended, so he bought the building in 1913 and called his budding enterprise Dirks Furniture. Today, 105 years later, that original building still stands as part of the complex of buildings that shelter our business. I wish he could see it!

Have there been changes? Of course! Four generations later, August would hardly recognize the business or the area it serves. But he would certainly recognize his philosophy of fair prices and fair dealing. That has never changed!

We invite you to visit us in downtown Olivia. The most common remark we hear from new visitors is, "How do you have such a nice furniture store in such a small town?" The answer is simple: We do it just like August did. Fair prices, fair dealing, great furniture and great customers. We look forward to meeting you.

Why should I buy from Dirks instead of a big box?

For the record, nothing any of the big boxes sell is “free", whether it be carpet, pad or labor. No one stays in business for long when giving products away. Regarding free installation, would you work for nothing, not collecting a paycheck? Absolutely not! No installer I know would do that. All of the costs of “free" product are hidden somewhere in the price. You may get a break on carpet or labor, but only if you agree to purchase a specific carpet pad at an inflated price. Reputable independent merchants won’t play that game. They must stake their reputation and their future on developing loyal customers and serving them the best they possibly can. Once one of our sales associates has measured your room(s), we will provide you with a complimentary estimate, by line item, containing all costs pertinent to your project. Any additional, necessary charges to the final invoice will be agreed upon by the installer and the customer. Don’t be fooled by the “free" sales tactics. Ask questions and don’t purchase until you have satisfactory answers. Remember: If it sounds too good to be true…it probably is!
